Reading and Craft Talk Series
Our Reading and Craft Talk series provides opportunities for published authors to address informal audiences on topics related to the craft of writing. Held on Thursdays, 7-8:30pm, at Great Harvest Bread Company 570 E. Benson Boulevard, Anchorage, these free talks generally begin with a short reading followed by a 20-30 minute craft talk. The event concludes with a question and answer session and book signing. (Authors are responsible for providing their own books.)
49 Writers typically schedules three Reading & Craft Talks in fall and three in spring. We prefer to confirm presenters at least four weeks in advance but we are always open to additional opportunities as they present themselves. Click here to propose a Reading and Craft Talk.
